The Encyclopedia of Early Earth

By: Isabel Greenberg (Author).
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company Edition: First Edition edition (December 3, 2013).Description: 176 pages ill, 8.6 x 0.9 x 12 inches.ISBN: 9780316225816.DDC classification: 741.5/GRE/2013 Summary: A beautifully illustrated book of imaginary fables about Earth's early--and lost--history. Before our history began, another--now forgotten--civilization thrived. The people who roamed Early Earth were much like us: curious, emotional, funny, ambitious, and vulnerable. In this series of illustrated and linked tales, Isabel Greenberg chronicles the explorations of a young man as he paddles from his home in the North Pole to the South Pole. There, he meets his true love, but their romance is ill-fated. Early Earth's unusual and finicky polarity means the lovers can never touch. As intricate and richly imagined as the work of Chris Ware, and leavened with a dry wit that rivals Kate Beaton's in Hark! A Vagrant, Isabel Greenberg's debut will be a welcome addition to the thriving graphic novel genre.
